First one I can remember is Secret of Evermore. I PROBABLY played Castle of the Winds before that, though.

SoE - played at a La Quinta on their game service thing. Would've been sometime during the summer after second grade, for me.

Castle of The Winds - Shareware disc. Would've been *during* second grade. Why? I got it at Sam's Club and I recall wearing a coat when I got the thing. That means WINTER.

Final Fantasy IV on my friend Alex's Super Nintendo.

But I never played for very long and (to this day!) never beat it.

The first RPG I played and completed (quite thoroughly, in fact) was Chrono Trigger. It was the game that got me into RPGs, and still my all-time No. 1.

Phatasy Star. My friend told me he had this great new game for his Master System that I had to go and see.

I can't believe it took him 2 years to finish!

I believe it took him that long, heck it took me ages too.  I remember  the one dungeon on Dezoris the guaron morgue I think that gave me fits back then.  The pit traps in some of the later dungeons were very disorienting I remember.

I'd guess it took me 4-5 months before I finished up the game.

My first rpg was Final Fantasy VII. I had never played a game at all until my friend showed it to me, and I just loved it and have been playing rpg's(and games in general) since then.

My first ever was Dragon Warrior 3 (a.k.a. Dragon Quest 3).

During high school, after setting video games aside for almost a year, I looked and noticed a genre I had not played, and rented it from Albertsons at the price of a dollar for 5 days.

Two weeks later they called me asking where it was. I said no worries, I was still enjoying playing it. I kept it for about a month and faithfully paid the $6 in late fees. ^_^  ...Then I did the same thing with Dragon Warrior 4. Eventually I found a copy of Dragon Warrior 2, and Final Fantasy 1, which I enjoyed to smaller degrees.

Later on someone lent me his SNES, along with FF4, FF6, Chrono Trigger, and Lufia 2.  I also got ahold of Secret of Mana and Super Mario RPG, for a very quick educational run through the 16-bit RPG timeline.  I had quite a ball over that one year, and CT became my favorite RPG. It still is.

No, not LunarNET... Lunarnet, the IRC network. We've been around even longer than LunarNET, we're just smaller.  There's an #RPGFan channel there. Check it out.
